I can't believe Pacquiao is fighting Marquez for a fourth time. Granted, their first 3 fights were awesome, but enough is enough. I would much rather see Pac get his rematch (and revenge) against Bradley.

Of course we all want to see Mayweather stop being a coward and quit making excuses and step in the ring and back up all the smack he's talked about Pacquiao.

I often go rounds with a bag as a warm-up before exercise. When I was a kid, I broke my right wrist and it's been aching in periods ever since, also when I started punching the bag. But I think punching is actually toughening up the wrist somehow. It hurts less now, both while punching and in general daily life, than it did before I started.

Anyways, with some kicks added, it's a good warm-up, I think. At least it's a lot more fun than jogging

the only sports injury I have is that my left shin is chipped from a badly-thrown cricket ball and not wearing any shin-guards

I was hoping for this fight about 8 years ago. Unfortunately Pac has begun to look like his career is on the downhill swing. I'm thinking Mayweather could take him, granted it would be a horrible dance-a-thon by Mayweather for the victory.

Pac may be on the downhill. Maybe not. He was robbed against Bradley, and Marquez is just a tough SOB to take down and happens to match up well against Pac, so it is hard to say how much he is declining.

But I agree, I would have loved to have seen this fight years ago. The longer it's delayed, the more it favors Mayweather.

Regardless, when it does happen, it will be the biggest boxing event in a long time.

I agree on the Bradley fight he was jobbed Don King Style. Marquez does have a hell of a chin but thats what Pac was known for, knocking guys with great chins out. Regardless he still has gotta be considered top three pound for pound.

This fight would hearken back to the Sugar Ray vs Duran/Hearns/Hagler days for me, I've been waiting for a fight to truly peak my interest for awhile. Lots of great talent in boxing still but nothing with the excitement of the 80's. We can only hope Arum can make it happen and Mayweather puts on his big boy pants.

I did boxing for a few years.. Very interesting sport, but in my opinion there are better ones. MMA is definitely a good option if you want a range of things rather than just a specific area.
For self defense, I'd hands-down suggest Krav Maga, however that isn't competitive so if that's what you're looking for, look elsewhere..
There are loads of other martial arts, they all offer something different.. You could always go for somethign traditional such as karate kung-fu or karate, or go for something more westernized like boxing (as you originally mentioned) or kickboxing.

I loved Hagler and Leonard. The entire middleweight division in the 80s was fierce.

Here is Hagler and Hearns in what was the most brutal, entertaining and action-packed round in the history of boxing referred to as "The War."
